Our room had ocean view and although it was not luxurious, it was very clean and comfortable. The place is great if you need to relax. There are entertainers for various activities in the beach and pool, but they do not try to convince you to be a part of it. The evening shows were very well planned and entertaining....

I was there last October with my 2 girls for their birthday. We loved it ! I thought the Allegro Playacar was hard to beat... they did it! We wanted to go back on the same stretch and beach as the Allegro, the Allegro was closed for renovation so we picked this hotel next door and have no regrets. The...

We just stayed at this resort from the 10th to the 17th and loved it! Our room was clean and we had a great garden view. The buffet food was buffet food as to be expected... the two restaurants we went to had pretty good food though. The bar staff was super nice as was the rest of the staff....

A smaller resort than some, but excellent location and great food, We were very happy with our room and the service. This resort has a sister resort just a short walk down the beach which is open to guests of the Azteca. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys the all inclusive vacation.

Had a great time at Azteca. Breakfast and lunch at the buffet every day were decent. The dinners at the restaurants in the evening were very good. Liked all 6 that we visited. Nice to wander down to the sister resort about 10 or 15 minute walk on the beach. Get a drink there, look around maybe grab a snack...

This resort was amazing! The food was the best ever. The location was great! The staff was very helpful and friendly. My spouse injured himself on one of our adventures.

We have traveled extensively and decided to try an all inclusive for the first time so I write the review for fellow travelers and not for the frequent all-inclusive / cruise type traveler.

Had a great time. Really enjoyed the smaller size of the resort, more accustomed to larger places. The food and service was excellent. Great staff, all very friendly. Of course the beach was beautiful....love riviera Maya.....always. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Would have been nice to have live entertainment by pool bar in the evening (music)

Please know that this review in NO WAY is a commentary on the staff of the Viva Wyndham Azteca. The staff were wonderful and friendly.
